Five reasons you should franchise your business right now!

People often ask me, “Should I franchise my business – is it right for me?”

The first thing I’d say is if you have a business that is only slightly profitable after royalties then do not franchise, as it will be a world of pain! Franchising only works if you have a proven profitable model that is transferable and has growth potential.

We all know of the extremely low percentage of women on Boards and in Chairman positions in the top companies in Australia, and if you start to compare Australia’s percentages with…

Start your own business

This addition focuses on Pets, Children and Green Franchises, which are all interesting topics considering that in business if you can avoid it they say you should never work with animals and children, but these topics are more business orientated for business owners than people realize.
